Development Psychology: Pt. 2: Developmental Psychology II

Hardback
This collection provides a comprehensive and up-to-date synthesis of the most significant publications in the field of Developmental Psychology over the past century. Over a total of six volumes, the Editors present the benchmark readings in the discipline, including highly cited theoretical articles, empirical articles as well as some book chapters that have had great impact in terms of presenting research findings and influencing the key debates in the field. There is a particular emphasis on recent publications to complement older, classic works, illuminating new directions in the field theoretically and methodologically, and on representing the discipline from an international perspective. Each of the volumes opens with an introductory editorial essay by the Editors setting out the rationale behind the selection of papers in terms of their historical, theoretical and empirical importance in the development of the field. The net effect is to provide an integrated account of this very established and expansive discipline. Volume 4: Theoretical perspectives Volume 5: Social development Volume 6: Language, communication and literacy These 3 volume reference sets will be an invaluable addition to any academic library with an interest in and/or existing collection in Developmental Psychology. Given their diverse yet coherent organization, they provide an excellent supplement on relevant courses where students need to engage with the provocative ideas that have made this field both lively and fascinating.
